    it is very difficult to see your picture m8, if you host it on photobucket.com it would be much easier to see

    oh and i never saw this post before either, but if i get to buy this board now i have a complete manual on where everything is!

    Wow, nice guide. I hope you don't mind but I copy pasted most of it into word documents for future off-line reference ;), it really was that good.

    I don't mind at all, hopefully this forum stays up for a while though so it will be here for a while.

    This forum is great and this thread is a really good start for the new people that are wanting to build.

    Hopefully new builders start with something simpler than Dual Cores and $150 cases.

    best one ive seen before, no comp...

    but.....

    for the real noobies (no offence)

    there was no mention of the back plates on the LGA775 intel socket.

    My first upgrade from skt478 to skt775 was un aware of this and screwed in mobo then had to unscrew it

    I'm not sure what motherboard/heatsink you were using, but I have never needed to mess with the backplate on any LGA775-based system using the stock cooler, most aftermarkets use a similar design where they are simply pushed down into the holes. However the cooler I have now needs a special backplate, and the cooler actually screws into it.

    Yes, this guide was with my P5K Deluxe, Q6600, and 2900XT. I have since sold that and I'm not using the rig in my sig.
